    So I have a discrete video card (GeForce GTS 250) and my integrated (GeForce 8200), right now I am using my discrete with both monitors used up, can i do anything with the integrated GPU? I have Ubuntu and Windows and as we all know linux can be pretty amazing.

    yes, there should be a bios option to allow you to enable the IGP in addition to the dedicated card. ATI calls it surround view but I can't for the life of me remember what Nvidia calls it lol
    sonnytiger says thanks.
